Be an active participant in your own life.

What happened to us is not our fault. But it’s our responsibility to participate in our own healing and growth.

Choose to do the work.

Investigative Selfism is like investigative journalism but looking inwards.

Here, explore resources that can help us lead lives that are more meaningful, authentic, and bold. Together with an array of teachers, I dive into the topics of fear and courage, integrity and discomfort, personal agency, and how to build it.

Most importantly, I share resources that can empower us to move through life with more self-compassion.

Welcome and enjoy!

So, for over a decade, I’ve been pursuing my interests in mindfulness and Buddhist psychology, only to discover how well they go together with other disciplines like neuroscience, NLP, CBT, NVC, Internal Family Systems, and others.

Just like you, I’m learning how to speak to myself more gently, set healthy boundaries, uncover my limiting beliefs, and empower myself to live and love more fully.
